Eyllah lives in Wilmette, Illinois and is currently a Senior at New Trier High School. She has been dancing since she was 3 years and joined ExD when she was in 7th grade. Eyllah is a passionate dancer and is so grateful for the guidance and mentorship of Lizzie MacKenzie through the past several years. Her love of dance has taken her around the world, and she has participated in multiple dance summer intensives. These include; Alonzo King Lines Ballet, Interlochen Center for the Arts, Hubbard Street Dance, and Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company in Israel. As an aspiring choreographer, Eyllah has self-choreographed several pieces and is especially proud of the collaboration with Lizzie for her senior solo this season. She has trained in Classical Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Graham, and Horton. Contemporary is her favorite dance genre. Eyllah loves spending time at the studio with her dance friends and feels at home whenever she walks in. Outside of dance, Eyllah likes to hang with friends, family, 3 dogs and 2 cats and is making the most of her Senior year despite the unique circumstances at school and at the studio. She knows that dance will continue to be part of her experiences in some capacity in the coming years after graduation as well.
